K-12 Teacher Workshop-Global Girlhood: Wisconsin to the World!

September 26, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

An online Workshop for K-12 Teachers in two sessions.

Despite the progress on gender equality that has been made around the world, girls still face significant barriers to equal rights and opportunities. Many of these inequalities have been exacerbated by the current global pandemic.

This workshop will highlight the current status of girls in Wisconsin and around the world, and provide strategies and resources for incorporating global-girlhood topics into the K-12 classroom. We’ll also hear from two inspiring young women leaders, from Honduras and Somalia, through Green Card Voices!

On Saturday, September 26, please join UW-Madison’s Institute for Regional and International Studies, UW-Milwaukee’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies and Institute of World Affairs, and Alverno College for this free workshop.

Pre-registered participants will receive a free copy of “The Status of Girls in Wisconsin” report from Alverno College’s Research Center for Women and Girls. Make sure to provide your mailing address.
